Letter 1650

Darwin, C. R. to secretary of Royal Society

19 Mar 1855

    Summary Add

  • +

    Recommends publication of Leonard Horner's account of researches in alluvial deposits of Egypt [Philos. Trans. R. Soc. Lond. 145 (1855): 105–38]. It contains valuable observations which will probably become of still higher value in future.



I am of opinion that Mr Horner's Account of the researches made in the alluvial deposits of Ægypt, should be printed in the Philosophical Transactions, as the means of permanently recording valuable observations; and which observations probably will become in future times of still higher value.—

Charles Darwin
